Reception Home Learning 6.5.20

Reception Class Wednesday 6th May

To the Parents and children of Reception Class.

"Happiness is not about getting all you want, it is about enjoying all you have."

Don't forget there is Storytime every Monday, Wednesday and Friday with Nick at 2pm. This is on the RWI site.


Mrs Garbett's Group.

We have now completed all of speed set 2 sounds. However it is too soon to progress to speed set 3. So we will repeat speed set 2 with some additional writing.

Recap previous sounds/words

Sound- ee (what can you see?).

Words- tree, three, creep and free.

Sentence- Can you creep on three legs? (Make the sentence easier if required).

Words to read- catch, sat, will, fish, chips.

Mrs Evans group.

Recap previous sounds.

New sound- or (shut the door)

Words- sort, short, worn and horse. (or and se are special friends).

Sentence- Look at the horse.

Mrs Miles group.

Recap previous words.

Word time 6 is quite tricky as some words have more than 3 letters.

New words- thick, zip and chat. Don't forget to identify special friends.

Read the words above and then write them down.

Don't forget the- high frequency words. Perhaps learn 3 or 4 a week and just keep recapping.

I  go  come  went  a  was  look  there  are  we  and  me  like  going  she  they  my  see  on  away  this  play  no  yes  for  can he  am  all  you  said  to  day  there



All Children- Draw big shapes outside using chalk if you have it. Shout out the names of shapes for your child to stand in the correct shape. Talk about the properties of each shape.

Most Children- Play shape shop game. 1 of you is the shop keeper with a selection of shapes and the other is a customer asking about the shapes in the shop. You could you pretend phones and money for this activity.

Challenge- Play snap or pairs using shapes that you have made.


Perhaps you could discuss with your child how there will be garden parties and celebrations on Friday to celebrate the end of a World War 11. Obviously because of lockdown, families will have to celebrate within their own household. What can we do/make, to celebrate this fun day? Perhaps you could think about having a family picnic in the garden. How can we decorate the garden? Think about the colours we could use. What shall we eat?


Can you make a "We'll meet again card" for a grandparent or someone you haven't been able to see for a while. Decorate in red, white and blue colours. Write a lovely message and send in the post. You will definitely cheer someone up. 


Make several big triangles on paper or card. Can you decorate them in the colours of red, white and blue? You could also use paper plates and hang them like bunting. Decorate your windows or outside in the garden.




When snakes are coiled and resting, they look around calmly, and when they move, they are slow and smooth.

Sit up tall. Take a deep breath in, filling up your whole body.

Pause and breathe out slowly and smoothly, making a hissing sound for as long as you can.

Repeat for three to five rounds, feeling yourself slow down and become calmer each time.

Weekly Welsh

Following on from last week-Think about the foods you would like to eat to celebrate VE Day.

Beth wyt ti'n hoffi? (What would you like?).

Answer dw i'n hoffi……… (I like….)

Make a list of the foods. Draw them and write the names of food. Try to use initial sounds or part of the word.
